Yes that is exactly what I mean by callous, there is the rule of law and the spirit of the law. NZ has seen many people sent back who left NZ while very young and get sent back for life. often with no real connection any more to NZ. Look at the recent issue with young the Jihadi women in Turkey, she lived in NZ for a few years, became an Australian then the Aussies want to dump her back on NZ when the Turkish authorities wanted shot of her. As I say there is the rule of law and spirit of the law, so much for ANZAC mateship I guess. I realise that a majority of these criminals deserve what they get, but it is also used to clean up some Australian made social issues (Bikies), and then dump the problem on NZ.
Hopefully one day we can send back the White Nationalist bloke who murdered all those innocent people in Christchurch.
